The Winkevoss twins – Tyler and Cameron – who failed to wrest control over Facebook from Mark Zuckerberg, have become billionaires in their own right – thanks to Bitcoin!

Investing $11 million in Bitcoin four years ago, from the $65 million they got as a legal settlement from Facebook, that asset is now worth over $1 billion.

The Winklevoss twins purchased Bitcoin tokens when the price was at around $120. As of this writing, Bitcoin is worth $11787.31

The twins haven’t sold a single Bitcoin since they bought in, merely watching their investment grow by leaps and bounds over the past four years.

They now own one of the largest Bitcoin portfolios in the world.

Of course, Zuckerberg is currently worth $71 billion according to Forbes, but one-seventieth of that isn’t a bad deal at all!
